Mass Audubon’s Drumlin Farm is running a new teen climate advocacy program in 2019. The program, Youth Leaders for Climate Justice, aims to educate and empower high school students to make change at a local level.
In January things kick off with a day-long Climate Learning Intensive Program for teen teams interested in climate advocacy. Climate professionals, and Mass Audubon educators and young civic leaders will educate, equip, and inspire our teens to be strong leaders and environmental advocates. From there, each team will return to their own community with a plan to make change at a local level. Throughout the semester Drumlin Farm will promote their work, lend support and guidance, and foster the network of these Young Leaders across the state.
To culminate a semester of hard work YLCJ returns to Drumlin Farm in May for a showcase of their success. Each teen group will present their project, receive recognition for their efforts, and build on-going connections with those working in environmental fields.
Deadline to apply is December 21. More info is available online or by emailing email@example.com
